Kareem Hunt situation a bad look for NFL

Kareem Hunt celebrates on the sidelines after a victory in the game against the San Francisco 49ers in September

But like I said, the men in this circle, the men in our locker room, the organization, Chiefs kingdom - we got one goal to win the Super Bowl. Based on his age and statistical production compared to other running backs through two seasons, Hunt was projected to receive a four-year contract worth roughly $45 million when he hit the free agent market in 2021, according to calculations by Spotrac, the online sports contract database. The two were asked to leave, and the fight broke out in the hallway.

"It was just a long night", he said. "I was in the wrong, I could've. I was in the wrong, I could have took responsibility and made the right decision to find a way to deescalate the whole situation", Hunt said.

He declined to offer specifics about what led to the disagreement, which occurred last February, and said he meant to seek treatment. You know, he has some things that he needs to learn. "That's not an excuse". I didn't mean to hurt anybody or anything like that. League officials told ESPN the NFL reached out to the woman and her friend on multiple occasions, but they did not respond.

He said the episode started with a disagreement, escalated into an argument and then physical violence. "The video shows it". I'm not that type of person. "To see that, it's really tough, because I wish I would have handled it differently". I'm told the league made several attempts to obtain it.

"They believed that I lied to them. My actions caused this". I know my upbringing wasn't ideal. I love the program and the people there. Some time that he needs to take. "I realized what I did once I saw the video".

Hunt reiterated, "That's not me".

Hunt hadn't seen the footage - he didn't even know it existed, he said - until it came out on Friday.

Just 40 minutes later, the Chiefs released a statement confirming they were severing ties with him.

During an exclusive interview with NFL.com, Rice explained that he wants to help Hunt get to the "underlying problems" that led to his February incident, which was revealed in a video released by TMZ on Friday.

Still, our sources tell us National Football League investigators paid multiple visits to the resort in an effort to gather information and any possible video evidence.

In the ESPN interview, Hunt confirmed that he was not honest with the Chiefs about the incident.

"No they have not", Hunt claimed. If that sounds awfully similar to the situation former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was in, you're not alone in thinking that. An independent investigation by Robert Mueller III revealed inadequacies in the league's investigation.

As far as the release of the video... She would need to present evidence of serious injury for the incident to be upgraded to a felony, the report states.
